    South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy was forced to teach a DHS official about Constitutional rights during a House hearing. GOWDY: Let me ask you another question about the terrorism list. What process is afforded a U.S. citizen, not someone who has overstayed a visa, not someone who crossed the border without permission, but an American citizen; what process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list? KELLI BURRIESCI: I'm sorry, um, there's not a process afforded the citizen prior to getting on the list; there is a process should someone feel they are unduly placed on...

    Erdogan’s major difference with ISIS is where the Islamic caliphate ultimately should be based. He believes in the restoral of a caliphate under Ottoman rule While admitting that he was not in possession of all of the facts regarding Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane on November 24th, President Obama was quick to blame only Russia. He said at a joint news conference with French President Francois Hollande that Turkey had “a right to defend its territory and its airspace.” Obama also criticized Russia for propping up Syrian President Assad by going after the so-called “moderate” rebels rather than concentrating...

    Hillary Clinton presented one set of Benghazi facts to her own family; another to the family of the victims and the American public. Within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Clinton emailed her daughter, Chelsea, that Americans had died at the hands of an al-Qaeda like group. Al-Qaeda is the Islamic extremist terrorist group that was led by Osama bin Laden. Clinton also informed Egypts prime minister and Libyas president that the attacks were preplanned and had nothing to do with an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube. Yet Clinton told the American public and families of...

    Benghazi: Hillary Clinton Adviser Sidney Blumenthal Had Financial Stake In US Libya Policy, Says GOP Lawmaker [ full title ] . Sidney Blumenthal was a principal character in Hillary Clinton's Libyan policy discussions, even though he was neither an official adviser nor an impartial party, according to the Republican chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack. In a letter, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina claims there was a financial stake for Blumenthal in Libya as he pressed for Clinton to intervene. "Blumenthal was not merely acting as a steward of information to Secretary Clinton but...

The committee subpoenaed Bryan Pagliano on Aug. 11, according to The Washington Post. In addition to testifying on Sept. 10, committee chairman Trey Gowdy asked Pagliano to produce documents related to the servers he managed on behalf of Clinton.

    House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., charged on Friday that the State Department gave his committee thousands of pages of press clippings in response to a subpoena that was issued in March. For some reason, Gowdy said, some of those press clippings included articles about actor Richard Gere. "You know what we got last week? We got 3,600 pages, half of which were press clippings, including articles about Richard Gere," he said on CNN. "So if that is their idea of complying with a congressional investigation, then we are going to be at this for a long...

    An ad unveiled today by Hillary Clintons presidential campaign is being denounced by Greta Van Susteren, who says it selectively edited her interview with Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to make it appear the Benghazi investigation is politically motivated. Via her website, the Fox News Channel host has demanded the Clinton campaign remove her 81-second Briefing spot, also providing a transcript of the original program to prove Gowdy was not actually backing the Democratic presidential primary candidates claims. Van Susteren sees the key discrepancy as Chairman Gowdy saying it could be when I pointed out that a delay in releasing the...

    A popular military enlistment program for immigrants with specialized skills is now stuck in bureaucratic limbo after the Pentagon announced last month it would begin allowing some young immigrants without legal status into the program. Army officials confirmed Thursday that the program, called Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, has been suspended while the service tries to finalize screening procedures for the immigrants who want to enlist. (SNIP) And a new requirement instituted in 2012 mandates that all MAVNI applicants go through a high-level security check, called a single-scope background investigation.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy's rise from obscure South Carolina backbencher to chairman of the House's new special Benghazi committee took a quantum leap last October, when he stole the show at an otherwise mundane Republican news conference about the terrorist attacks. While only in his second term, the conservative Gowdy rushed to the podium and with the conviction of a preacher and the erudition of a prosecutor launched into a passionate yet disciplined plea for "justice" that mesmerized those watching, including his GOP colleagues on the dais. "No one has been arrested, no one has been prosecuted, no one...

    Good luck with that. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi faces pressure from all sides in regard to the newly-launched select committee to investigate Benghazi. Participating would legitimize the results, while boycotting it might open up Democrats to attacks on their concern for diplomatic personnel abroad, four of whom were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012, and leave administration officials no way to set the narrative through the friendly questioning of Democrats on the panel during public hearings. Pelosi hedged in the direction of participation by demanding an equal number of seats on the committee:

    There is a lot more to come on the Benghazi cover-up, and it could well lead to criminal charges for withholding subpoenaed evidence. Trey Gowdy, an experienced prosecutor who will head the House Select Committee, has gone on the record (on Greta van Susterens FNC program of the same name) as having more evidence of a cover-up. ... The person who should worry most is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For example, until now we have seen zero documentation to explain how Clinton out of the blue concocted the statement she issued on the evening of the attacks, which...

    South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy claimed he has evidence of a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress about the Benghazi attacks and alleged White House cover-up. Gowdy spoke with Fox News Greta van Susteren about Speaker of the House John Boehners Friday decision to form a select committee on Benghazi. The congressman explained that the committee will allow a more complete investigation into the issue, unburdened by the jurisdictional restraints that often plague other committees. If you want to have Greg Hicks and the station chief from Tripoli and Hillary Clinton all sitting at the same...

    Today Speaker of the House John Boehner announced he will finally bring to the House floor a vote on H.Res 36 which would establish a Select Committee, with subpoena powers, to investigate the Benghazi incident. We should all applaud the efforts and diligence of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va) for his resolve in gaining some 190 co-sponsor signatures for this legislation. Its obvious, with the recent revelations from the lawsuit brought about by citizen watchdog group Judicial Watch, that the Obama administration had little to no respect for the House Committee hearing process. Their continuing supply of heavily redacted emails is...

    Earlier this week, Sen. Jeff Sessions said that the president was deliberately dismantling our law enforcement system. Megyn Kelly of Fox News asked Rep. Gowdy about that. Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, agrees with Sen. Sessions that the president is systematically dismantling the nations laws, but he believes it is to win elections not to pursue an agenda. They [the administration] do however fundamentally view their role differently, he added. Attorney General Eric Holder recently claimed that illegal immigration is a civil right, if that is so, Gowdy says, that is like saying you and I have the right...

The California Republican said Lerners Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination was voided when she gave an opening statement this morning denying any wrongdoing and professing pride in her government service. When I asked her her questions from the very beginning, I did so so she could assert her rights prior to any statement, Issa told POLITICO. She chose not to do so so she waived. Lerner triggered...

Police said Ehrhardt called 911 Monday night and said the burglar had apparently left. Officers were responding to his call when they received a second 911 call about a possible shooting, police said. Police believe Ehrhardt was a target because the killer or killers were in his apartment for a few seconds....

In the 2000 election, we learned just how important this office can truly be in a serious situation. One of many marks against him is his reputation for shaking down campaign contributors while on Fiscal Court in Jefferson County. Maple filed for Secretary of State more than two years before the filing deadline, collecting contributions into his Secretary of State account from those with business before the Fiscal Court.
